Diana Mini Superstar: The name says it all

1

She may be small, but she can easily beat the big cameras out there! Read on to find out what makes this version of the Diana Mini a "Superstar!"

The Diana Mini, is available in a huge number of variations and colors, from the classic colors, to the Diana Mini GOLD or even variations with eye-catching pattern like the Diana Mini Double Rainbow. But I had never seen something like the Diana Mini Superstar that I exclusively found at Urban Outfitters. Or did she find me?

Like the other small sisters of the Diana F+, the Superstar takes either 36 square or 72 half frame pictures, using 35mm film, not medium-format film like her big sister.

Due to its 24mm lens and the 4 zone focus, you can get sharp pictures between 0.6m and ∞. Choose between 2 apertures: Sunny (I guess f/11) or cloudy (probably f/8). If you don’t choose the bulb mode, which allows you to take long time exposures due to the tripod socket and the access for a cable release, the Diana Mini Superstar has a shutter speed of 1/60s.

The shutter speed is fast enought that I can use it with the Diana F+ Flash to illuminate the scene or with any middle contact flash like the Color Splash, using an adapter.

The light blue of the body is a bit different from the color of her sisters, it is a bit brighter, a bit more brilliant. What is completely different from the other versions is the camera strap, that in this case is a nice silver necklace and the decoration of the body consists of thousands of tiny sequins, that give her the look of a real showbiz diva!

    I got this one too. It looks a bit girly for me but my other Diana Mini is the Hello Kitty one so I guess that must be my style. haha
